Published by iUniverseBooks
The region north of Houston, Texas, is a cultural enclave of communities and sites distinctive in Texas history. Here, significant contributions to the history of the great state of Texas emerged, along with some of its most noted and distinctive personalities, communities, and historical sites.
Thoroughly researched and ambitious in scope, The Cradle of Texas Road explores this region of Texas to demonstrate how the Lone Star State has become a model of cultural integration in the United States. Robin and Joy Montgomery trace the evolution of this region beginning with the birth of the province of Texas through René Robert Cavelier Sieur de La Salle’s influence with Spain to the modern pioneers who provide inspiration for Texas and beyond.
This historical study shows how regional pride can and should spill over into the rest of the area, thereby providing greater unity to the state itself. Focus is also given to selected communities and historical sites that harbor a significant event or personality. These include
• the gravesite of Sam Houston;• Huntsville’s Andrew Female College;• Bedias, home to the original Native Americans; and• the Alamo, where William B. Travis drew a line in the sand.
Step back into history and discover some of the most dynamic examples of cultural innovation in the United States with The Cradle of Texas Road.
